FOOD CARTS FOR
EXPERIENTIAL MARKETING

Food carts are a great way to test out
some experiential marketing for your
brand. Give potential customers a unique
opportunity to explore your brand in an
up-close and innovative way.

Take Rag & Bone, for example, a clothing
brand that set up a “deli” food cart outside
Nordstrom’s flagship location in NYC. The
brand showcased exclusive clothes, shoes,
and accessories in a creative take on the
classic NYC deli stand, using special
promotions and collecting emails for the
chance to win gift cards. This allowed
customers to experience the brand in a
way they never had before, piquing
interest on the street, a previously
untapped market.

fabulous food carts for experiential
marketing, you can learn more at
